"I don't think you can write comics without trying to reflect what's going on in the real world. I mean, that's kind of our job. I believe we have two jobs we have to do simultaneously: We have to reflect what's going on in the real world and we have to entertain you.

So I wouldn't say it was, like, wanting to go after that. It was more like, we can't write without doing that.

And we wanted to show that this movement, this thing, this idea that Lee Bermejo had, which was brilliant, of all these people being inspired by these Robins, is kind of a double-edged sword. It's inspiring and wonderful, but it's also a bunch of kids on the street trying to do jobs they might not be prepared for. And we wanted to examine whether that was a good thing or bad thing. Not come down on one side of the other. It stays a little bit gray.

Light warning for violence.

Now here was a mini-event I was looking forward to. Tom King's first crossover event? That sounds like fun, especially with the previews and small brief bits of info I heard about. However, warning signals went off in my head the moment I saw the amount of people working on the first issue alone...

The 2000s weren't a great time for Batman. True, there were a lot of good stories and creators with a lot of good work at the time, some of which is still influencing work to this day (such as Gotham Central and the Brubaker/Stewart/Cooke Catwoman run), but as for the character himself? ...Well you know how a lot of the bullying behaviour from Silver Age Superman stories can apparently be traced back to one particularly unpleasant editor or something? Same goes for Batman's behaviour in a lot of these stories.

Where the personal taste of the creators throw everyone under the bus )

Much of the comic-sphere is abuzz with DC's announcement about what's coming in June after their "Convergence" event ends...

For one thing the "New 52" will no longer be used as a tagline or a concept. (After more than three years, that seems fair enough, it was hardly "New" to begin with... and also, they're down to 49 titles, so it wouldn't even be accurate.

A LOT of info there, and at least one cover scan that I think is worth discussion!

But then... I would! )

As promised, this is the second mega-posting to celebrate the end of "Dude(s) in Distress Week", dealing with published images... (This is sort of a "Greatest Hits", as much of it has been posted before)

The history of the "Dude in Distress" in graphical literature is a long and noble one... there are probably medieval woodcuts showing that sort of thing, but as that slightly predates most of the usual area of scans_daily, we'll skip to something vaguely more recent... well, relatively speaking.

LOTS of scans under the cut, but I've used smallish thumbnails so as not to kill your broadband completely! Just stun it slightly...

Over a century of Dudes in Distress )

Well, now. You haven't succumb to madness or frustration after Cass's final bout of EVIL in Titans East? Well guess what? It isn't over! This is the final chapter of Cassandra Cain's villainous career of being EVIL and her stepping back into the side of light.

As we've seen with the debates with this post...

...there's a bit of controversy regarding the direction of the Bat books. Some object to Bruce not being a loner. What's with these groups and others wearing the Bat symbol? What's with people looking to Batman as an inspiration when he's just supposed to scare the crap out of everybody, good and evil aike? Bruce publicly funding superheroes? What's with that candle swearing ceremony thing?

They all date back decades, in some cases almost as long as Batman has existed.

A look back...

A repost from two S_D incarnations ago.... Discussion of the no-kill rule here reminded me of this in Robin 140 by Bill Willingham and Scott McDaniel

We start with a cover which just screams "WRONG!" on every level to me. Robin with a rifle, surrounded by hand grenades and hand guns just seems deeply disturbing...

The JLA as weenies, military philosophy and topless Robin kicking butt! )

Welcome to day 3 of [community profile] scans_daily's 30 Days of Winter celebration! Today's topic is Retcons. Retcons can be funny things, usually intended to fix some kind of problem, sometimes perceived and sometimes legitimate, often they create new ones themselves and a quagmire in continuity results! But every now and then a retcon comes along where the benefits so outweigh the consequences as to be irresistible, and today is for those times.

Like this one, an s_d favorite! )

So tell me, what's your favorite retcon?
And stay tuned tomorrow, when the topic will be Manga!
